Sound Off: Girl Scout Cookies

Last few years, I get my Girl Scout Cookies at tables set up in front of Walmart. This year I had a door to door seller.
The other day I heard a knock on the door and there was a whole passel of kids out there, 2 or 3 little ones hauling 4 wheel carts of cookies, the Girl Scout and a friend to ring the doorbell and make the sale, a big brother to take the money and do the paperwork. Everyone was cooperating with each other and having a ton of fun and I bought 4 shortbreads.
So why am I sounding off? The cookies I remember were delicious. What I got was at best, ordinary and the box was smaller than it used to be. Really it was, I realize that memories sometimes enhance reality, but I think the old fashioned Girl Scout cookies really were better.
For $5/box I really think the people producing the cookies should do a quality job, these girls should have cookies they can be proud of to sell.

Are the cookies made in China now?

1) They use them for fundraisers, but don't need the funds. IIRC, the money does NOT trickle back down to the kids.
2) They changed cookie bakeries and the original bakery had a patent/copyright/trademark on the cookies, both the names and the recipes, thus the name/style changes.
3) The new cookies suck profusely.
